Advancements in anesthesia technology are one of the major factor driving the growth of anesthesia devices in the United States. The adoption of novel technologies is earlier and higher in the United States.
The risks associated with anesthetic care reduced considerably during the last decade, due to technological advancement and automation, which have played a significant role in improving the safety of patients. Some of the advanced technologies include anesthesia information and management systems (AIMS) with integrated decision support, target-controlled infusion systems, better design of anesthesia machines, closed-loop delivery of anesthesia, and point-of-care ultrasound-guided procedures.
The introduction of new monitoring techniques, such as monitoring the depth of anesthesia, goal-directed fluid therapy, advanced neurological monitoring, and improved alarm system, and technological advancements in objective pain assessment are certain advances driving innovation. Decision support system (DSS) is another specialty of anesthesia. It is a digitized information receiver and relay center, which in conjunction with anesthesia information management system (AIMS), helps the clinician in the delivery of health services, simultaneously monitoring the well-being of the patient. Increasing investments in the United States market, which are supporting the technological advancements in anesthesia machines and techniques, are having a major impact on the market’s growth, enabling faster deployment in the healthcare industry.
Key Market Trends
Anesthesia Work Station to Witness Steady Growth Over the Forecast Period
Anesthesia workstations are user-friendly and customizable. They are being offered with features, including storage, writing surface, lighting, valves, gauges at a reach, along with main functionalities. They consist of a ventilator, carrier gas, and agent delivery system, a scavenging system, and monitors. The ability of these devices to optimize anesthesia workflow and reduce process costs with integrated features is boosting anesthesia workstations’ popularity among medical professionals.
Currently, anesthesia workstations are designed to provide both anesthesia gas delivery and monitoring capabilities, combined with advanced ventilation features, such as information management, writing desks, and drawers, to form an integrated anesthesia care station. In addition, the lesser human interaction and provision of assistance at many levels, by reducing the time and effort of a practitioner, are found to be the other factors associated with the increasing demand for workstations. The growth of this market in the United States is also attributed to the equipment’s capability to integrate with various devices, as well as the display of anesthesia, ventilation, and hemodynamic data on a single screen, for streamlined decision-making. Thus, the integration of various devices into one machine will reduce maintenance time and increase efficiency, thus, expanding the market.
The anesthesia devices market is moderately competitive and consists of several major players. With the rising patient awareness levels and high prevalence of diseases and a rising number of surgeries, few other smaller players are expected to enter into the market in the coming years. Some of the major players of the market are B. Braun Melsungen AG, Medtronic PLC, Draegerwerk AG, Koninklijke Philips NV, and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, among others.
